Catching chat show cheats.

DAYTIME TV show host Robert Kilroy-Silk has waded into the row over fake guests.

Mr Kilroy-Silk was speaking after revelations that guests on ITV's Trisha and the BBC's The Vanessa Show were frauds.

And it has been revealed one guest featured on both The Vanessa Show and Kilroy - also made by the BBC - within 24 hours.

Chat show chiefs are under pressure to come up with new screening measures to stop hoaxers getting on air.

Three members of the team behind The Vanessa Show were effectively suspended after claims some "guests" were recruited from agencies.
